Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a dress for curvy girls! LOVE this dress and the color is the perfect poppy. Please bring this back in more colors (olive, navy, ivory, black). It's stunning on, the fabric is flowy and slightly sheer. Cuts a little short on me in the front but would be cute with skinny jeans or leggings for extra coverage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved but had to return I loved this dress - the style and color are perfect! Please be warned that it is super sheer, I debated just wearing a slip under it but I felt like if I moved or lifted my arms you would be able to see the slip. In the end I just returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute dress but see-thru This dress is cute and a great vibrant color, but is unfortunately see-thru (even with nude under garments). Bummer it will have to go back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Quality Although it says online that this dress is lined, it is not. For the price point, it should certainly not be see through. Was very disappointed, as it's a great dress stylistically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring/Summer Work Staple Madewell, please make this in more colors! It is a perfect work staple---clean and professional/fun, but also lightweight. The cut is flowing without feeling like a sack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I rarely buy clothing full price, but once I saw this dress online I knew I had to go to the store to try it. I sized down from an XS to an XXS - I'm petite and when I tried on my normal size the dress ran too long and oversized. I'm trying to build up my wardrobe with high quality materials and timeless styles and this dress definitely fits the bill. Beautiful color and very flattering. Had to wear nude-colored shorts under the dress as it is a little bit sheer, but other than that it's great and flowy for summer. Got a ton of compliments on it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very cute but sheer This silk dress is beautiful and nice material but it is very sheer. I think with a nude colored slip underneath it would be fine but I prefer a loosely goosey shirt dresses in the summer. Because of how sheer it was, I decided to return it. Also, the collar sit funny on me and at some point looked like a night gown... I'm 5'0, 110 lbs and ordered a small. I would size down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this shirt dress is WOW the fit is easy breezy cool - the look is minimalist and flattering. please make this dress in other neutral colors (black, beige, navy) -- i would buy one of each. a new go-to for all occasions. i use the slip from the tie-back mini dress in shadowpetal (which is a two part dress slip/over dress Madewell sells currently) and the slip works great for eliminating any sheerness/modesty issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You're going to need a slip I love this dress--it is loose and swingy, has a great color, and is perfect for hot summer days. That being said, you will need a slip--it is very transparent. It is also very short. I am 5'3 and do not think I could wear this to the office until it is cold enough for leggings/opaque tights.
